– Sandy Webb

Extremely Hardworking, Professional and Personable

Incredible Agent

“Steve Roose was such an incredible agent to work with. He guided me through the process answering all of my questions and always being available. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest and trustworthy person to do business with.”

– Sandy Bjorklund

Worked Tirelessly

Steve is an excellent realtor. We listed our home for sale after we found our new home and had a small window of time to get the best offer we could. We quickly had a buyer in place due to Steve’s marketing and connections and everything was ready to go. Our buyer dropped out last minute and within hours Steve had another buyer lined up with an even more attractive offer!! We didn’t even have time to get stressed out! He worked tirelessly for us and we couldn’t be happier. We admit we were very picky and high maintenance and he never even blinked. We have since recommended him to family and friends and have gotten great feedback from them as well.

Best Possible Deal When Buying and Selling

Steve has bought and sold a house for me in Newport Beach and got me the best possible deal in both cases. He was always available and responsive. His knowledge of the market is unsurpassed. I highly recommend him as your agent.

Quality Business with a Personal Touch

“I was referred to Steve by a friend and I will now do the same. I highly recommend Steve! Just the right balance of quality business with a personal touch!”

– Kim Csongor

Negotiated the Best Deal

Steve is amazing. He is professional, completely accessible, negotiated the best deal for us, and is very pleasant to work with. We will be working with Steve again soon and I highly recommend him.

– Affeldt Family

Highly Recommend

Steve is extremely professional and is a pleasure to work with. He is very kind, prompt, timely and pays attention to the details. He helped my sister find the perfect home and didn’t give up until we were in. I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy, sell or lease a home.

Steve Roose is, simply, a great broker. He represented us in a purchase of a house on Balboa Island. Within hours of our first conversation, he provided detailed market data that helped us to understand prices in the market, and how to bid for the property in which we were interested. During the negotiation, he gave us sound advice during the process of offers and counteroffers. He walked us through the contracting process (which was new for us, since we are out of state). He introduced us to the builder who will be the contractor for the new house we will build. He introduced us to people in the community. He was always on time for meetings or calls. And he always has a smile. We give Steve our highest recommendation!!

Steve is a force of nature. Always prompt with a response and smile, he delivers with any request. He helped us: Find/Buy a Teardown, Choose a Builder, Rent three properties while the house was being built, introduced us to numerous island people who are now are friends, let me borrow his truck and literally cooked us dinner multiple times. Steve is not just a realtor. He is our friend.

Steve is one of the most dedicated, caring, professional and honest agents that I have ever worked with. He helped me buy the home of my dreams. Steve is the person you want, because he cares more about your transaction than he does for his own benefit. I recommend him extremely highly.

Steve recently helped us purchase our first home. As many people know, home buying is usually a stressful process but Steve smoothed it out as much as possible with his responsiveness, industry knowledge, and friendliness. When our lender became unresponsive and almost cost us the deal, Steve was able to work on a solution for us. We love our new house and our garden!! Thank you!!

Steve Roose and his partner Connor Gordon are exceptional!! We were new to OC but once we started with them, it didn't take us long to find & buy our first home. As first time home buyers, we needed help and advice during the whole process and they helped eliminate a lot of stress through their insights, pointers and impeccable follow-ups . Steve and his team represent the highest degree of professionalism, courtesy, support, and integrity.

I highly recommend Steve as your next agent. If you are looking for someone responsive and professional who is also caring then Steve is your man. I could not be happier. He has been extremely helpful and has gone above and beyond for me in every situation.
Amazing, trustworthy, and supportive!!!My husband and I had the absolute best experience with our first 1031 exchange being handled by Luxury Real Estate.The family property had to be sold and a 1031 needed to happen.Our go to is Steve and Greg at Luxury Real Estate!Steve Roose & Greg Earl are the ultimate pros. Every challenge that came up was handled with great aplomb, they are so quick to respond (even after hours) when we would reach out with questions (and we had MANY along the way!)When they listed the property for sale, within hours of listing there were multiple offers for above asking price.They quickly got to know our likes and dislikes for the property we were looking for and took us around to different places that fit our criteria.They practice safety measures during these Covid times, making the very anxious me, feel comfortable.They act with urgency, without being pushy, they are fun and an absolute joy to work with and be around.The whole process took a grand total of 2 months.Steve and Greg have such integrity. Truly wonderful people.We highly recommend working with them! We look forward to doing business with them in the future.

My husband and I found a house that we loved and were eager to make an offer on, as it had just come on the market and we knew it wouldn't last long. We contacted Greg and Steve, and they were incredibly responsive every step of the way. They were patient with us with all of our questions regarding the process. Their communication was truly excellent and they helped us land our first -- and hopefully forever -- home!

Some of the best guys I know. We sold quickly and for more than I anticipated! Strong open house, ads, networking skills. Maybe I should just sell my new house too!

I have been an electrician since 2000 and have known hundreds of real estate agents. I can honestly say that Steve stands out among them all. He is extremely professional, honest, hard-working and intelligent of the coastal market. Give him a call, you won't be disappointed.
